The Modern House Magazine – Number 02
The Modern House Magazine is the ultimate guidebook to modern living.
Featuring originally commissioned photography, opinion pieces, long-form writing, interviews and more, we survey what it means to live in a thoughtful, considered way both in and out of the home.
The second issue of The Modern House Magazine features an international roster of stories that explore living well, both at home and further afield. We invite you into some of the world’s most creative living spaces, owned by equally original people who all have something to say about architecture, design, culture and modern life.
In Tokyo, fashion director Terry Ellis explains how he mixes mid-century furniture and folk craft in his tatami-floored apartment, while out in the Japanese countryside, Hender Scheme founder Ryo Kashiwazaki shares how his traditional house is a place of peaceful reflection away from the city. In South Africa’s wine country, the story of farm and hotel Babaloynstoren’s verdant land is told on a single day in high summer.
Closer to home, we see how Corin Mellor is engaged in an intergenerational pursuit for good, everyday design at the David Mellor headquarters in the Peak District. We head for lunch at Gill Meller’s seaside home in Devon, and follow chef Shuko Oda from her mid-century townhouse to Koya noodle bar in Soho.
What books does Hans Ulrich Obrist think architects should read? How do leading designers and architects envision the future of domestic spaces? Discover all of this, plus original artwork and bold photography, in Issue Two of The Modern House Magazine.
